    Will try to bake the world a better place today too, as inspired by many of you yesterday. Cardamom orange crinkle cookies, anyone?

    Have I told you about the scent of jasmine? Have I spoken about the smell of the sea? The earth is scented. And I perfume myself to enhance what I am. That's why I can not wear a perfume that bothers me. Perfuming is an instinctive wisdom. And like all art, it requires some knowledge of yourself..."

    Hello everyone!

    We were all set to have a lazy Sunday, but then we decided tennis would be fun, too ...when life gives you unexpected court-time you must take it! I'm in No19, 80s edt. Y'all have a great day!




    Wolfie, orange and cardamom cookies sound wonderful, and your kitchen's going to smell heavenly! I can still smell traces of lemon on my fingers from yesterday ...good thing we weren't peeling and slicing 100 onions, lol.
    Science is not only compatible with spirituality, it is a profound source of spirituality. When we recognize our place in an immensity of light-years and in the passage of ages, when we grasp the intricacy, beauty, and subtlety of life, then that soaring feeling, that sense of elation and humility combined, is surely spiritual. ..Carl Sagan

    Hello, everyone! Well I had a great day yesterday but it wasn't spent baking as planned. Had an offer to go shopping and took it. My oldest son wanted to go and we had a great time, eating out and shopping, it was a wonderful day. My husband gets back today from Africa. Before they left Johannesburg he called and asked if I wanted any perfume from the duty free shop, well that was a no brainer, of course! I've already bought my own Christmas gift this year, so felt a little guilty getting anything else. They had a bottle of Guerlain Aqua Allegoria Flora Rosa (2013), so he's bringing one home. I'm thrilled he even thought of it, so nice of him.

    Twolf, your cookies sound scrumptious, would love a few of them right now!

    Wearing Serge Lutens La Vierge de Fer this morning from a sample. It's a very nice subtle lily scent. Wasn't excited by the opening, but it improved rapidly.





    Wishing you all a lovely Sunday!!

    Aww, that is very nice of your husband,K, glad you will be having him back!

    Saw a motivational/spiritual speaker this weekend, Victor Marx, he was there to share his story and he's got a 7th degree black belt in Cajun Karate Keichu-do(whatever that is LOL), a 5th Degree in Weapons and can disarm a handgun faster than anyone! Here's a quick clip just of him disarming a gun:



    Loving the vanilla dry down in Dolce and I have been kinda hating vanilla lately, LOL but this perfume makes me like like it again!

    Day 3/4 testing Enchanted Forest, just a bit today and smelling on my hanky because my fiance's Royal Oud came in.
    OMG, what an amazing smell!

    Beautiful, sunny, COLD, snowy day here in St Louis.

    Sofie had a friend overnight. At 10:30 pm her Aunt called to ask if she could come over. The Aunt wanted to see if the girls where actually here and that there weren't any boys over, no drugs & no alcohol. She arrived at 10:45pm & stayed, after a full tour of my house, until 11:30pm.

    I am deeply offended.
    However, by way of explanation, the Aunt has been lied to by parents in the past, she doesn't know me, so I have to take that into consideration.

    Still, I'm just a tad offended.

    So I'm going for happy perfume today. For me, that's citrus scents & incense to uplift & soothe.

    EAU DE JATAMANSI is perfect.
    OLFACTORY PYRAMID
    Note of Top : Clary Sage, Cardamom seed, Bergamot, Grapefruit
    Note of Heart : Rose, Ylang Ylang, Spikenard
    Note of Base : Guaiacum, Sandalwood, Vetiver

    I'm testing Bond I Love New York for Holidays today. It's ok, but not jumping out at me as something I need. (And that's probably a good thing!) Notes: tangerine, blueberries, dark plum, purple freesia, osmanthus, sandalwood, white amber, teakwood, vanilla gelatto, musk

    Enjoy your Sunday everyone!
    I've trademarked the color bleu

    I've been a twin with Twolf in Bottega Veneta today for a visit to my in-laws to exchange gifts and catch up, on one of the few days in December that my OH isn't working. For all of the Christmas period he will be working a late shift, which means that our Christmas dinner will have to be at some time before 11am if we're going to have one at all.

    I guess that means I'll have plenty of time to catch up with my backlog of books to read then...

    Hello again -

    I'm in my favorite cozy, lounging-around-the-house duet, Shalimar Parfum Initial and Ava Luxe's Nude Musk for posh, oriental opulence with a warm, carnal edge ...perfume magic.

    Y'all have a good evening.
